Weekly Parent Letter

December 2, 2021

 Wow!  It is December.  Thanksgiving has come and gone and Advent has begun.  The month of December will fly by.  Take time to prepare yourselves for the coming of Christ as a baby into our lives.

 The St. Edward Youth Choir will sing this Sunday, please encourage your children grades 3rd – 12th to join them in the choir loft.  They will practice for their next Mass after this Sunday’s Mass.

 Please consider joining our Sunday FIRE activities each and every Sunday after Mass.  This week’s adult conversation will be adult Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  We will focus on Advent.  Activities will be available for the children. Come join us for is food and fellowship. 

Wednesday, December 8, 2021, is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.  We will be celebrating mass at 10:30 am and the staff will be leading us.    

Come one, come all to our annual St. Edward School Christmas Program – in person!  Miss Callens and the students have been working hard to prepare this special event for you!  We will have a matinee at 1:30 pm and an evening show at 7 pm.  Please plan on joining us on Wednesday, December 8th for this fun family event!

The CCW Scholarship Commission is planning a meal before the Christmas program.  They will be offering BBQ pork sandwiches, chips, applesauce, bar, and beverage for a free-will offering.  This helps us finance scholarships for St. Edward parish seniors. Scrip will also be available prior to the concert.

We will continue our food collection efforts for the area food shelf next week.  

Thursday will be our December Guardian Angel Lunch.

Friday, December 10th we will have a dress-up day and wear our ugliest Christmas sweaters.

Be sure to talk to your children about their Advent Angels.  The children just love this program and the more prayer we put into it, the better it becomes.  Everyone loves to receive the “love notes” given to them by their Advent Angels!

A new VIRTUS Training Session has been added for Tuesday, December 14, 2021, from 6:30–9:30 p.m. at the Church of Ss. Peter and Paul in Ivanhoe.
